Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
Festi Vini 2011 : 03-11 September was eight days of festivities, culture, fun runs, concerts with the principal event: Le Marché des Vins, being held on Sunday 04 September in Place de la République, in Saumur.
Le Marché des Vins is one of my favourite events of the seasonal calendar.
A fabulous day out which caters for every family member.
Gérald, representing Domaine de la Paleine for his 6th year was one of the 60 Pays de Loire vineyards to be invited.
Glorious sunshine and high temperatures aided the days festivities, enjoyment of artisans’ goodies and vignerons’ wines.
Having timed their return stays perfectly were our wonderful and fun loving clients, Lisa & John, Susan & Paul, both of whom we had had the great pleasure of welcoming to ‘La Bellevue’ last year.
Armed with their dégustation glasses, “un grand tour” of “le marché” was in order before concluding at Gérald’s stand to sample the Domaine’s latest vintages.
